NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivcat - concatenates and converts Inventor	files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivcat [-bfht] [-o file] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     ivcat reads each file in sequence and then	writes each out.  If no	input
     file is given, or a filename of "-" is specified, ivcat reads from	the
     standard input file.  The input files must	be valid Open Inventor 3D
     Interchange Format	files (1.0 or 2.0).

     The following command line	options	are allowed:

     -b	  Write	out the	files in binary	Inventor format.  The default is to
	  write	out the	files in Inventor's ASCII format.

     -f	  Remove all SoFile nodes.  This has the effect	of condensing
	  hierarchical files into a single file.

     -h	  Print	usage message.

     -o	file
	  Send the output to the given file, instead of	to the standard

     -t	  Expand SoTexture2 nodes to explictly include the texture data	rather
	  than a file name.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     To	convert	from binary to ASCII Inventor

	  ivcat	< binaryfile.iv	> asciifile.iv

     To	convert	from ASCII to binary Inventor:

	  ivcat	-b < asciifile.iv > binaryfile.iv
